Sorry that we have been MIA for a few months. This just cropped up, and it’s simply beautifully sung by David.

The usual warning applies: There are videos and pictures from the mission and stuff. Don’t read further if you don’t want to.
No videos or cameras were allowed, but this was what we heard happen from tweets (mainly from Gladys who recounted the experience on The Voice chat). For a detailed recap, head over to ohmyheckdavidarchie tumblr or The Voice.
Tonight’s concert feedback – there was salsa, kicking, boxing & kneeling — all from
#DavidArchie - ok kill me now! waaaahhh!
Had fun chatting w/ Gladys who was lucky to be invited to
@DavidArchie‘s concert in Rancagua. Archies, don’t forget those defib by 2014!
I cant belive it! Today i was in a “concert” with Elder
@DavidArchie :) was Amazin
@DavidArchie says “bacán” and “cachai” he loves Chile
It’s funny that he actually sang Eye of The Tiger at the devotional event lol
“He came out boxing like a boxer when he sang Eye of The Tiger.” Aww David <33
“He apologized for the boxing act because missionaries don’t do that and laughed a lot, and he said he is no longer thin looking.” HAHAHAHA.
@DavidArchie had grown bigger. Like you know, MUSCULAR.
@DavidArchie wore a black suit, turquoise tie and a white hat. But the white hat was only for a song.
“HIS VOICE IS NOT CHANGING, BUT IS BETTER, HIS VOICE IS RESTED, THAT MUST BE IT…
Karate kicks, salsa dancing. Hero. SPANISH CONCERT. This is just too much. How about an encore when you get back,
@DavidArchie spoke entirely in Spanish, did some salsa and sang Hero. You have no idea how sexy that image in my head is right now

The David Archuleta Chilean fansite offers some guidelines:
PERO RECUERDEN QUE EL VIENE A CUMPLIR UNA MISION, NO POR SU CARRERA DE CANTANTE POR LO QUE PEDIMOS EL MAYOR RESPETO POSIBLE HACIA EL.
COMO ACTUAR SI LO VES?
1- Si no estas dispuesto a escuchar sobre la palabra de Dios lo mejor esque te alejes para evitar la histeria de Fans
2- No lo pidas autógrafos ni Fotos
3- No le digas “David soy una gran Fans Tuya” recuerda que el necesita estar concentrado en Dios.
4- No Grites ni corras a abrazarlo, el solo puede darte la mano.
5- Y lo mas importante, SIEMPRE PERO SIEMPRE mantén el máximo RESPETO HACIA EL.
Si alguien actúa de otra manera puede provocar que el “Presidente” de la misión lo regresa a casa antes de lo previsto y eso le haría mucho daño a David ya que el realmente quiere servir como misionero. Este tiempo es para el y Dios no para nosotros, en 2 años mas el volverá y podremos gritar su nombre, pedir canciones y mas pero ahora debemos respetar su decisión.
Translation courtesy of FOD:
BUT REMEMBER HE IS COMING TO COMPLY WITH HIS MISSION, NOT HIS SINGING CAREER SO WE ASK THE GREATEST RESPECT TO HIM AS POSSIBLE.
HOW TO ACT IF YOU SEE HIM
1 – If you are not willing to listen to the word of God the best thing to do is to get away to avoid hysteria of Fans
2 – Do not ask for autographs and photos
3 – Do not say “I’m a Fan David Yours” remembers he needs to stay focused on God.
4 – Do not scream or run to embrace him, he can only shake your hand.
5 – And most importantly, ALWAYS BUT ALWAYS hold the highest respect for him.
If someone acts otherwise it may cause the “President” of the mission to send David home earlier than expected and that would do a great harm to David and he really wants to serve as a missionary. This time is for him and God , in 2 years he will return and we can scream his name, request songs and more, but for now we must respect his decision.
Not sure how many of you are David Archuleta fans, but I asked my Dad (who is his mission president) if I could share something about his arrival in Chile and this is what he had to say about him, “He is a very humble, non-ego person..Not centered on himself. He is just GOOD. That is the word for him. And he is very excited to be here and loves his trainer and has already taught some lessons in his first sector”. Pretty cool. Out of respect for Elder Archuleta I wouldn’t want to get more specific than that on his experiences. Just good to know he is doing something good and for the right reasons. #respect #mormon #lds #missionary#archuleta
